How to Make Cheesy Stuffed Red Peppers

Step-by-Step

  1. Heat oven to 400.
  2. Spray a little olive oil spray in a medium size saute pan and heat on a medium flame. Add onion, garlic and cilantro to the pan.
  3. Saute about 2 minutes and add ground beef. Season with salt and garlic powder, and cumin and brown meat for several minutes until meat is completely cooked through.
